Very pleasant overall. I made a reservation for 715 and we were seated right away. The waiter was patient and went through the numerous specials. They were very willing to accommodate special requests for the dishes. I don't think he heard that I wanted an appetizer but it came very fast after we brought this up. My swordfish was excellent, as was my wife's chicken. They were great about not rushing you. We were there for over 3 hours! Menu items were a bit pricey but the food was tasty and portions were ample. My wife complained the noise level was too high, but it is a small restaurant with a lot of tables that are closeby so it is hard to avoid...
It never fails to please! Absolutely delicious, amazing service and very accommodating chef for food intolerances. Love it there!
A favorite neighborhood restaurant. Always greeted warmly. The breadsticks are to die for. Fabulous osso buco. We come here frequently. Never disappointed. Beware Fridays and Saturdays very crowded so service suffers sometimes but the food makes up for it.
Excellent meal. Kind of a loud space, but the food was so good that it was worth it.
You will like family!!! Amazing food and service. The staff is super friendly and the food was delicious. Recomend to anyone.
The food and service are outstanding. It is a bit pricey but all worth it.
Took a friend for dinner for her birthday. The service and food was the best. It always is . Will be back soon.
Small Italian Restaurant, comfortable, with really good food and service. Go there several times a year/GSW
Consistently excellent food over countless years. The best . Friendly staff.I reasonably priced !!!!!
Always a great meal at Il Castello. Service and food exceptional.
Excellent as always !!!!
Delicious food! The best fish anywhere!! Great selection of Italian choices of deferent dishes !!
Too noisy Food was good but not outstanding. The veal was good. The Dover Sole was way overpriced.
We drove a long way and have been at the restaurant before. Not sure I would do it again.
Ill Castello is a great neighborhood restaurant. The food is always delicious, the service impeccable.
We had a lovely evening dining with friends.
Always get one of the specials for the day. Service is very, very good.
An excellent neighborhood gem - their Cappresse is excellent along with their combination Baked Clams & Clams Casino - the Burratto is terrific. Rigatoni Bolognesse. +++++; Ravioli +++++ desserts are also excellent.
Il Castello for longest time mu favorite!!!
Food was good. One veal dish was tough and over cooked . Had to get a stark knife to cut it. Other dishes, Chilean sea bass and bronzino were delicious. Noise level at 6:30 was fine by 8 you could hardly hear people at the table.
Well regarded Italian restaurant in MAMARONECK Villiage- food and service are excellent; gets crowded weekend nights but for good reason. Owner Lenny is there most nights and is a gracious host. Bar tender made an excellent martini and went to the trouble of stuffing olives w blue cheese on his own. We will be regulars here.
Il Castello is a wonderful restaurant in every-way .
Excellent food and friendly service.
It’s a favorite for us in area!!!!!
Excellent service with traditional Italian dishes. The staff is warm and friendly.
Excellent food and service!!!
Delicious food, painfully slow service. Granted it was July 4th, but it took almost 1/2 hour to get menus and order. We would have preferred faster food service and less emphasis on drinks. That said, the paparadelle Bolognese was delicious as was the artichoke appetizer and baked clams. We had a 6:45PM reservation and did not get out until 9:15.
Prices were moderate for the quality of food, but pricing on specials is not given unless requested and they were higher than the regular menu by $5-$10 per item.
Excellent food, attentive service, generous portions -- consistently tops in all categories.
Spectacular food!!! Waiters are pros!!! Loved the canoli for dessert!!!!
One of our Westchester favorites! Fabulous food and service. Great high end Italian menu and awesome specials. The stuffed veal chop was perfect as was a grilled swordfish special. Kids love the gnocchi w bolognaise. Cannolis and cappuccino for desert! Lenny and his team do a great job. .
Great service. Amazing and authentic Italian food. Felt like I was in someone's home.
The grilled shrimp appetizer were perfection. The pappadelle was devine.
Il Castello never disappoints! First, they make a perfect Cosmoplitan. Secondly, the bread basket is out of this world. And the service is attentive without being obtrusive. All of our entrees were excellent...we’ve never had a bad meal here. The owner Lenny roams around the room and stops to chat at every table. We never feel rushed. We are already planning our next visit!
An exceptional dining experience on a busy Father’s Day. A special occasion place that can serve a great meal on a holiday is not easy to find. The outstanding and professional serving staff was also well notied . The veal dishes we ordered were beautifully prepared and presented. The wine list is excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable eating event.
Great meal as usual. We were there for Father's day and we had vegetarians and an older person with us. There was something for everyone and it was all great. Service was cordial and attentive. Wine was very good and reasonably priced. All in all a very nice experience.
Excellent food, service, and ambiance. We enjoyed our dinner, so did our friends.
One of the best restaurants in area!!!!! Always excellent!!
Good food, service below the bar for what they’re supposed to be and what they charge.
Il Castello long time favorite. Love everything about it never disappoints. Highly recommend it . Best branzini ever !!!!
Sweet that they acknowledged our anniversary. Wonderful food and service - our first time but definitely not our last!
Il Castello never fails to provide exceptional customer service and excellent foot . The best in area!!!!!
We have never been disappointed with any aspect of dining here.Reservations are taken and honored, so that all one has to concentrate on is making a great choice from an extensive menu.
Had a reservation for Thursday night at 6:30 PM. The place was pretty empty, which was great in terms of being able to have conversation and being waited on. The wait staff was fantastic, they made us feel very welcome. We were told all the specials and the waiter seemed to know how often to come without being in the way. Food was absolutely delicious. The three of us all got the veal sorrentina special because it sounded so good. Portions were generous but we did leave a little room for dessert. We asked if they could prepare a fruit plate for the table and they obliged. My only complaint was the occasional fire truck or ambulance that would drive by which would generate a lot of noise, especially with the door open, but overall it was fantastic. Would definitely go back!
Great food, great service — a wonderful dinner, as is usual.
Our go-to place in town, always great. Delicious branzino, excellent pasta.
